Copa América - How to watch Brazil vs Venezuela on June 18, 2019

What is Brazil and Venezuela's Copa América record?

Brazil may be the most winning team in FIFA World Cup, but they are in third place when it comes to this South American tournament. Brazil has managed to win eight Copa América titles, the last one of those taking place in 2007.

Venezuela has never been able to reach the Copa América final, which rules out winning any title. The team's best result happened in 2011, when La Vinotinto earned the fourth place during the competition held in Argentina.

What is Brazil and Venezuela's form ahead of this game?

Brazil gets to this match with ten wins in their last 11 matches, with Panama being the only won to snatch a draw away from them. Their opening match in the 2019 Copa América concluded with a 3-0 win against Bolivia, which included a brace by Philippe Coutinho.

Venezuela has won two out of their last five games, with Mexico being the only team capable to beat them during that lapse. Rafael Dudamel's men have won some stellar games this year, including a 3-1 win against Argentina and a 3-0 victory facing the USMNT. Their last clash ended in a goalless draw against Peru.

  • These team's last Copa América match concluded with a 2-1 win for A Canarinha.

Brazil vs Venezuela - Injuries and absences

Without a doubt, Neymar's absences will be harmful to Brazil's chances. PSG's wingman was left out due to an ankle injury, which forced coach Tite to call Willian up to fill his void. After the team's first game, Brazil will only have to worry about Philippe Coutinho's booking, since one more could see him miss the final group clash.

On the other side of the pitch, Venezuela will have to deal with Luis Mago's absence after being sent off against Perú. Rafael Dudamel's worries won't stop there, since Yangel Herrera was also booked. One more yellow card could see him being left out of the crucial clash against Bolivia.
